of religion, clash of rights. here's how i answer dan. 50 years ago this day in one of surely the great legislative achievements in american history we passed the public accommodation section of the civil rights act saying if you open your doors to business in the united states you open it to everybody. that's a subtle issue. and the prestige of that law that just was obtained and i think that's where the mesh american people come down. it's a funny kind of sore winner in the gay rights movement that would say a photographer doesn't want to photograph my wedding. i have lots of other photographers i could go to. i'm going to use the hammer of government to force them to do this. it's not neighborly and it's not nice. the gay rights movement is winning. they should be, as i say, not sore winners. >> but having said that, i understand your point. you do say that if a gay couple wants to go into a bakery and have a wedding cake, the bakery should have to make cake. >> bake the cake. >> bake the cake. senator brown? you're thoughts on this? >> i thought what governor brewer did was appropri

attest to that we don't see race, religion or sexual orientation, we see simply can you help us win ball games, produce on the field? that's why you can have a multitude of people who are black, white, poll nice, gay, whatever it may be and come together to lay for a common goal. >> us it end? -- where does it end? i'm a bears fan, so it hurts me to say -- [laughter] do you get a 5-yard penalty for an italian slur? where do we draw the line in terms of, you said it, word police in enforcing this kind of rule, you know? if you call me an irish drunk, i consider that a compliment.
